On July 26, 2022, a regular meeting of the Kakamega court was held in Kenya in the case of the Kisumu and Western Kenyan Diocese of the Orthodox Church of Alexandria against the clerics of the Patriarchal Exarchate of the Russian Orthodox Church in Africa.
This was announced in Telegram by the Patriarchal Exarch of the Russian Orthodox Church, Metropolitan of Klin Leonid (Gorbachev).
“In short. Our clergy were accused of using liturgical vessels and utensils belonging to the Greeks during the Liturgy, of serving in privately owned churches, “violating the rights of citizens who want to remain in the Greek Church.”
Back in the spring, the court demanded that the plaintiff (diocese of Kisumu) provide a number of documents on the case. Since then, the hearing has been postponed twice. Once again – on November, 4. The Greek diocese was unable to bring to the attention of the court the documents on the merits of the case and obviously just deliberately delays the process,” writes the hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church.
The previous hearing in the case took place on June 29, 2022.
